Well I don't have anxiety attacks personally, but I have had problems with antibiotics getting rid of my tonsillitis. For me, I would take the antibiotics, usually augmentin and most recently biaxin for about 10 days, and after the infection would clear up, I'd feel better for a week or 2, and then I'd have the sore throats again, being bedridden and having no energy. For me, it was best to get my tonsils out. While I am only on the day after recovery, you should consider the surgery. I am not in as much pain as some have described, but my procedure might have been different than some who have posted on this board, and also, I am taking a mixture of meds. I took Biaxin starting the week before my surgery, as well as Vioxx 3 days before my surgery. That could have helped with inflammation and infection too. Good luck!
